The maths department at Litherland High School is an experienced team of maths specialists. All students work towards GCSE (Exam board AQA), with some students also completing the Entry Level Certificate and Functional skills qualifications.

Students have either 4 or 5 lessons per week and are set homework weekly.

At KS3, our curriculum focuses on key concepts and mathematical ideas.

We aim for all our students to develop a deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths, regardless of their starting point.

By KS4, we want to produce resilient young people who can work independently, think logically, communicate and reason mathematically and problem solve in all areas of the curriculum.

We recognise the importance and value of secure numeracy skills and number sense. We seek to develop our students fluidity and flexibility with number, whilst improving their mental mathematics and giving them the tools and strategies they may need in different situations.
